We were introduced to Grandma Brock’s Country Farm and owner, Debbie Brock, at our “Wok the Garden – Fall Harvest” Chef Demo last Saturday at Piedmont Park Green Market.Â No pre-printed recipes since we cooked up fresh seasonal vegetables picked that morning, in the spirit of a “Chopped” mystery ingredient basket!Â Thanks to all the farmers who contributed.
Fall vegetable highlight (photo): Black radishes? a.k.a. Nero Tondo. We discovered they have a distinctive taste similar to Daikon radishes.Â My family likes them raw and spicy or in a stir fry. I will also try Grandma Brock’s recommendation: roasted beets drizzled with olive oil, a little black pepper and feta cheese, yum!
